Japanese Print Show in D.C.
For the past couple of years I've purchased the catalog from the annual College Women’s Association of Japan (CWAJ) Print Show just to pore over the pictures of the winning prints. Now this Tokyo print show is coming to America. "On the Cutting Edge: Contemporary Japanese Prints," an exhibition featuring 212 prints from 50th CWAJ Show, will open at the Library of Congress on March 29, coinciding with the National Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington, D.C.
The exhibition marks the the donation of the 50th annual CWAJ Print Show’s prints to the collections of the Library of Congress. Thumbnails of the prints can be seen by following this link.
"On the Cutting Edge," will be on display from Thursday, March 29, through Saturday, June 30, 2007 in the Northwest Gallery on the second floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday. The exhibition is free and open to the public.
